Family separation at the border. It's not over. Here's how to help.

Our readers have always had the most generous spirits and the biggest hearts. Let’s put them together and make change. Let’s be on the right side of history.

Let's all make 2020 safer for our kids. And us. And you.

It’s not enough to look for the helpers anymore — we have to be the helpers when it comes to unnecessary gun violence. Here’s how.

So much coolness. Where to start…

Tattoo You

While the CMP staff has a bit of an irreverent streak, we do draw the line at tattooing your children. Unless the tattoo reads MOM in which case...no. No no no. No tattooing babies. But we can support the Mom Tattoo tee from Small Roar. This is a real mom and pop...

Hats On!

I love hats. Looooove. My poor kid has a different hat for every hour of the day, every occasion, and every nap-time. So when I happened uponBabyfairiesand their oh-so-adorable-headgear, I died. I seriously fell to the floor and convulsed from the cuteness. (Okay not really, but close enough).

Kid Tested, Vegan Approved

As a friend of several vegans, I know how challengingit can be for them to find acceptable shoes, let alone ones for their kiddos. And whilethe soft-soled booties seem to be the way to go,the leather obviously presents a problem. Isabooties to the rescue.

Real Simple Goes Family

We’re not sure if there’s a better mani-pedi read than Real Simple. Admit it, you’re dying to rip out half the pages when the pedicurist turns her head, stuff them in your bag and sneak them home with you. Or maybe you actually have?

I Can Practically Smell the Pineapples

This fun, handmade hula pattern skirt from mom-owned One Little Monkey is the perfect garment to herald the arrival of summer, if only because it's 180 degrees from any sort of uptight school uniform or requisite navy gym shorts. If for some crazy reason your daughter...

No More Mixed Decks

If you haven’t noticed, poker is taking over the world. And if you’ve got a spousal unit like my husband, you’ve seen enough Texas Hold ‘Em on TV that you could probably beat him at his own game.

Just in Case They Don’t Believe You

If your child is anything like mine then chances areyouwere the one telling your friends and family her first words. I mean, now she'll say "hi" and "no" in public, but when we tried to get her to express her first words to anyone but us, we were out of luck. It's too...

The Muse of Children’s Fashion

Some people you just want to hate. For example, a former model-turned-mom who still looks like a model. But when you get to know her a bit and find out she’s also nice and cool and smart and has a great kid, AND designs unbelievably awesome childrens clothes, well dammit, you just can’t be a hatah.

Pour Some Sugar on Me

While we love the monogrammed and personalized everything for kids these days, we’re always on the prowl for something that says "my mom thinks out of the box." We may have stumbled upon just that over at Sugar Roux.

Who Said Leather Was Out?

Bibs are a funny thing. You swear you never want to use them, but after a few soaking wet shirts (thanks to the drool machine known as your child), you get over it. And fast. I'm pretty sure I washed way more bibs than I thought ever existed. And then I threw half of...

Pick Your Man a PacMan

Ever struggle over what to get your husband for Father’s Day because he just won’t tell you? Fear not, adventurers: If your baby’s daddy was a child of the 80’s, he’ll love receiving a video game from his misspent youth, one at which he can actually beat the kids of today.
